Product Description

Dometic RUA 6408X 3 Way UES Fridge & Freezer 188L, 3 year warranty. The Dometic RUA 6408X model is an upright absorption refrigerator that features a narrow cabinet design that allows for greater flexibility in the kitchen area of recreational vehicles without compromising on storage volume.

The Dometic RUA 6408X refrigerator has undergone extensive research and development with the result being the most refined RV refrigerator on the market. At the centre of the Dometic RUA 6408X’s design is its tall and narrow cabinet, which allows for greater flexibility in the kitchen area without compromising on storage volume. Due to the smaller footprint, the Dometic RUA 6408X refrigerator reduces the dominance of the refrigerator in the kitchen area. The service process for the Dometic RUA 6408X refrigerator has also been streamlined by the narrow design. Rather than removing windows to access the refrigerator, the RUA 6408X refrigerator can be easily removed through the entrance door if required.

Notes:

  • For recommendations on appropriate accessories to go with the refrigerator (and advice on optimal ventilation set-up), please click on the below INSTALLATION GUIDE.

  • Absorption 3 way refrigerators need to be installed and certified by a qualified and licensed gas-fitter, as improperly or illegally installed products will void the manufacturer’s warranty, and could pose a safety risk.

  • While 3 way absorption fridges have the ability to run off 3 different power sources (12V / 240V / Gas), they are primarily designed with gas operation in mind; they provide exceptional efficiency when running on gas. However for 12 Volt operation, this is only recommended with absorption fridges when the vehicle is running, otherwise it can exhaust your 12 volt power source (battery) very quickly.

 

Note: This product is a gas appliance that must be installed by a qualified and licenced gas fitter to the current Australian Standard. Failure to do so will void the warranty and may pose a health and safety risk.

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • How often do I need to service my Dometic RV/Caravan appliances?

    Dometic recommend servicing their gas appliances on a yearly basis, even if the vehicle has not been used. Additionally, bear in mind that insects can built nests in the gas appliances which will cause the appliances to stop working. It can also cause potentially dangerous scenarios.

    For other appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, to ensure the appliances to work efficiently and last longer it is recommended to clean the condenser.

  • Does the RUA model only work on gas mode?

    The battery save mode available on the RUA models will allow the refrigerator to operate in gas mode only if activated. The exterior fan and frame heater will also be deactivated in this mode. Consideration of the ambient temperature needs to be made if this setting is to be selected.

  • How do I deactivate the child-lock in my RUA/RUC model refrigerator?

    These models have a great lock for children to prevent any accidental adjustments. You know that you have activated the child-lock if you are unable to change the temperature or the power source. You can either permanently deactivate or temporarily override the lock - please see below:

    • Temporarily Override the Child-lock:
    • Push the control knob 3 times within 1.5 seconds
    • The lock will be reactive again after 10 seconds without touching the control knob
    • Permanently Deactivate the Child-lock:
    • Start with doing a temporarily override, after that simply turn off the child lock in the settings menu
  • Do you require a 12v DC power supply to operate fridge on gas or 240v mains power?

    Not all Dometic 3-Way Absorption Fridge models. Models such as the RM2350, RM2453, RM2553, RM4601, RUA6408X and RUA8408X are manually selected to gas and have a push button ignition which means they do not need a 12v electrical connection ie they are manual ignition. They reduce gas flame to a pilot flame when not needing to cool further/cycle off and increase flame when they do. 

    On the other hand all MES - Manual Energy Selection , AES - Automatic Energy Selection  & UES (Selectable AES & MES modes) all require a 12v feed to give basic function even on AC power.  One of the things this enables is the engaging of the gas supply and the ignition of the gas. 

    The MES/AES/UES models disengage gas supply when cycling. When cycling back on the gas supply is engaged and the ignition automatically & electronically engaged.
